ELEPHANT is a platform for 3D cell tracking, based on incremental and interactive deep learning.
It implements a client-server architecture. The server is built as a web application that serves deep learning-based algorithms. The client application is implemented by extending Mastodon, providing a user interface for annotation, proofreading and visualization.


FluoGAN is a fluorescence image deconvolution software combining the knowledge of acquisition physical model with gan. It takes a fluctuating sequence of blurred, undersampled and noisy images of the sample of interest  fixed sample as input from wide field or confocal and returns a super resolved image.


Junction Mapper is a semi-automated software (Java Desktop application) for analysing data from images of cells in close proximity to each other in monolayers. The focus of Junction Mapper is to measure the morphology of cell boundaries, define single junctions and quantify the length, area and intensity of the staining of different proteins localised at cell-cell contacts. The output are various unique parameters that assess the contacting interface between cells and up to two junctional markers.

Local Z Projector is an ImageJ2 plugin, available in Fiji, that can perform local-Z projection of a 3D stack, possibly over time, possibly very large.

LZP performs projection of a surface of interest on a 2D plane from a 3D image. It is a simple tool that focuses on usability and is designed to be adaptable to many different use cases and image quality.

  • It can work with 3D movies over time with multiple channels.
  • It can work with images much larger than available RAM out of the box.
  • It takes advantage of computers with multiple cores, and can be used in scripts.

ND-SAFIR is a software for denoising n-dimentionnal images especially dedicated to microscopy image sequence analysis. It is able to deal with 2D, 3D, 2D+time, 3D+time images have one or more color channel. It is adapted to Gaussian and Poisson-Gaussian noise which are usually encountered in photonic imaging. Several papers describe the detail of the method used in ndsafir to recover noise free images (see references).

It is available either in Metamorph (commercial version), either as command line tool. Source are available on demand.
